I'm going to be learning how to use my "new" Cinema Prodcuts CP-16r ( Ultra mod + CLA + Collam by Bernie) . I'm going to get Cinelicious to scan it, they say they can handle Ultra, I believe.
I obtained :
1) an assortment of short ends and 100 ft reels of [tested] different stocks 50d to 400t
2) a canon digital camera which has a shutter priority mode with spot, center and overall scene modes. I intend to use this as a light meter. Also it has a light density graph.
So I think I need a clapperboard to write settings on, so i will know which exposures match which settings.
I don't think it's worth it to get a $1000 timecode board, although I think it would be good to get one with a clock taped to it to help organize shots.... I know it sounds cheesy but if it's 80% of the benefit for 20% of the cost....
I'm also deciding between a Tascam HD recorder which takes time code, and a Korg mr1000 which has super fidelity I'm told but no time code.
The cam is crystal, but I think this type of shooting is still considered "wild," yes?, because cam and sound recorder aren't linked.
Any obvious total misunderstandings there, enlighten me, thanks.
Any recommendations ? Those color bars look like a good idea for post, yes? A gray card too?
